Bucharest continues to lose its shabbiness, which for me is its charm

I am so sorry that my beloved Cismigiu, that deeply unfashionable park that Olivia Manning said was popular with soldiers and servants - and always despised by all self-respecting Bucuresteni - is losing its shabbiness. Like everything in Bucharest these days. I even saw a tourist horse and car there today.

  1. Despised by self-respecting Bucureșteni? I must have lived in a self-conceited dream-like life.
